My ex-husband lied on his Interrogatory in reference to

Hi. My ex-husband lied on his Interrogatory in reference to abandonment issues that would bar him from receiving money from my daughter's estate. His answers clearly contradict each, yet his attorney signed the document and used it as a basis for gaining $75,000 in a settlement. What do I need to do at this point to have my ex-husband charged with perjury and his attorney sued for negligence? I can give more details if you need them.JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer.

Question: Here is my draft "Response In Opposition To

Question: Here is my draft "Response In Opposition To Plaintiff's Motion For Judgment On The Pleadings." Do you see anything that needs to be changed before submitting to the court (I know I have to clean-up #1 and the caselaw citations in #4)?DEFENDANT'S RESPONSE IN OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF'S motion for JUDGMENT ON THE PLEADINGSAND NOW comes the Defendant, FIRSTNAME LASTNAME, Pro Se (“Defendant”) and moves this honorable Court, and requests, pursuant to Fed R. Civ. P. 12(C) this Court to deny Plaintiff's Motion, and moves this Court for an entry of an Order Denying Plaintiff's Motion, and files this Response and in support thereof and states:1) A document filed pro-se is “to be liberally construed, “Estelle v. Gamble, 429 U.S. {97} at 106,XXXXX285, and “however in-artfully pleaded, must be held to less stringent standards than formal pleadings drafted by lawyers,” ibid. (internal quotations marks omitted). Cf. Fed. Rule Civ. Proc. 8(f) (“ All pleadings shall be so construed as to do substantial justice”).2) Judgment on the Pleadings pursuant to Fed R. Civ. P. 12(C) can be granted to the movant only when no genuine issues of material factual dispute remain.3) In the present case, genuine issues of material factual dispute do, in fact remain (e.g. Where are the alleged promissory notes allegedly signed by Defendant nearly 30 years ago? Where are the alleged loan applications allegedly signed by Defendant nearly 30 years ago?)4) With respect to student loans, "to recover on a promissory note, the government must show (1) the Defendant signed it, (2) the government is the present owner or holder, and (3) the note is in default."United States v. Lawrence, 276 F.3d 193, 197 (5th Cir. 2001); United States v. Calzon, 2009 WL1585983 (S.D.Fla. 2009); United States v. Pognon, 2010 WL(NNN) NNN-NNNN(S.D.Fla. 2010); Student Loan Marketing Association v. Hanes, 181 F.R.D. 629 (S.D.Ca. 1998); cf., Form 1.934, Forms for Use With the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.5) Plaintiff's Complaint includes nothing bearing Defendant's signature. Therefore, genuine issues of material factual dispute remain.6) The Complaint contains as evidence in support of the existence of the alleged promissory notes nothing more than attached Exhibits in the form of affidavits (“Certificates Of Indebtedness”) signed by those with no personal knowledge of the alleged events that occurred nearly 30 years ago. Therefore, genuine issues of material factual dispute remain.7) As required by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the responsive pleading of the Defendant is sufficient as the Answer is sufficiently particular to inform the Plaintiff as to the defenses it will be called upon to meet (i.e. Defendant has informed Plaintiff that Defendant does not believe various of the allegations are true and that Defendant intends to prove that.) The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure requirements therefore have indeed been met.8) In Plaintiff's Brief in Support of Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings, Plaintiff states “Plaintiff has no idea which portions of the paragraphs of the complaint (Paragraphs 3, 4, and 5) are untrue and/or why the paragraphs may be untrue if the Defendant is asserting that the entire allegation is untrue.” The irony here is if Plaintiff is unsure what allegation in the paragraph Defendant is denying as untrue, then Plaintiff has not correctly drafted its Complaint, because each paragraph is supposed to only have one allegation. Therefore, genuine issues of material factual dispute remain.WHEREFORE, the Defendant respectfully ***** ***** Honorable Court deny Plaintiff'sMotion pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 12(c), and to grant the relief he request above.
